  6. 6. Transforming the Academic Landscape K- 8 High School Undergraduate Graduate and ResearchKindergarten Rocket Science TRADITIONAL TECHNIQUE
  7. 7. New Wave of Engineering Education Kindergarten Rocket Science HANDS-ON, PROJECT-BASED LEARNING
  8. 8. Integrative STEAM Education STEM Education fosters innovative and collaborative approaches to teaching and learning within existing programs.
  9. 9. Integrative STEAM Education#1. Increased academic rigor & opportunity for ALL students.
  10. 10. Integrative STEAM Education #2. Multidisciplinary approaches to problem and project-based learning. LEGO RoboticsBridge Design Testing Student-Designed Marble Sorter
  11. 11. Integrative STEAM Education#3. Communication, collaboration and teamwork, using 21st Century technologies and skills. Television & Multimedia students produce commercials
  12. 12. Integrative STEAM Education #4. Real-world problems and challenges, whichrequire the high-level application of both knowledge and skills. Students harness the XO laptop to capture audio from beehives
  13. 13. Create original animations in a variety of media. Lots of contests. Winning animations displayed online and ontelevision. Learn animation by teaching animated friends how to dance, act,and solve the challenges in the stories of their lives.
  14. 14. Students author and publish their own works, from hardcover books to music DVDs, to new types of products.
  15. 15. Gam Academ e yStudents design, program, and animate their own games.This is STEM meets creativity. It develops: - Mathematical/logical thinking in programming. - Art skills to create the graphic and audio assets. - Creative thinking to produce a compelling game.
  16. 16. Gam Academ Meets STEM e yBuild your own simulations, models, and science games in Scratch.
  17. 17. Big Goals21st Century Literacy:Computer literacy.Project management.Team work.Sustainable Education:Each generation makes materials for the next.
  18. 18. Introducing Scratch can make almost anything in Scratch.Examples (games, paint program, tools, funny cards)
  19. 19. Scratch is… A tool developed at the MIT Media Lab. Tile-based programming. Sciences. Arts. Creativity. Scratch is FUN! Invent what you want. Today, let’s invent thefuture.
  20. 20. Create original animations in a variety of media. Lots of contests. Winning animations displayed online and ontelevision. Learn animation by teaching animated friends how to dance, act,and solve the challenges in the stories of their lives.
  21. 21. Animation Academy Develop creative stories, explore different mediums, learn visualaesthetics. STEM combined with Art. It develops: - Creative Problem Solving skills. - Traditional and performance art skills. - Research skills - Computer literacy
  22. 22. Big Goals21st Century Literacy:Computer literacy.Production Pipeline/ Time management.Team work.Sustainable Education: Animations that help others to learn concepts. Early Learning Alphabets
  23. 23. Introducing iStopMotion You can make Tons of great videos and animations. Examples (instructional videos, time-lapse videos, all sortsof animation styles, flipbooks)
  24. 24. Let’s Make Waves!Let’s see an example!!
  25. 25. Let’s Make Waves!Ideas on ways to extend our work… Instructional examples (transverse, longitudinal) Create a time-lapse of clouds, ocean Get kids Active, Pixilation Radial wave simulation Simulate: Storm, earthquakes generate waves Simulate: Bathymetry creates surf
  26. 26. Scratch, iStopMotion and Curricula They are a great way to make science relevant, engaging, and extremely cool for our kids. It helps give them the skills to become 21st century knowledge workers. Sustainable Education - Older students master concepts and create interactive learning materials to then help teach younger students.
